Statement of Interest

The Coach House Theatre is a major example of a former gate lodge and exhibiting a characteristic use of eclectic historical styles, including half timbered gables. The gate lodge is an unusual combination of garage, gate lodge and dwelling and gave the architect the opportunity to experiment with substantial architectural motifs, such as a prominent circular turret.

Inglewood House was designed by prominent architectural practice Sydney Mitchell and Wilson, with a fine Jacobean interior and Art Nouveau glasswork. The work of Mitchell and his practice is characterised by the masterful use of late 19th century Freestyle and is responsible for some of the most ecelectic and significant country houses at the turn of the 20th century in Scotland.

The lodge was converted into use as a theatre and is used by the Alman Theatre Company which was founded in 1940.
